Missouri Vote Rejects Federal Mandate on Health Insurance

As I have long advocated, states must refuse to go along with Obama's federal government and its unconstitutional laws.  Through the process of nullification or by other means, the individual states should just say NO and tell the feds to stuff it.  That goes for nationalized health care, carbon cap and trade, the planned seizure of pension funds and outrageous increases in taxes (via a national sales tax or other).

The people of Missouri struck a first blow to the Obama Leviathan by voting overwhelmingly to reject the feds mandate on the forced buying of health insurance.

From the St. Louis Today Website:
ST. LOUIS • Missouri voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected a federal mandate to purchase health insurance, rebuking President Barack Obama's administration and giving Republicans their first political victory in a national campaign to overturn the controversial health care law passed by Congress in March.
"The citizens of the Show-Me State don't want Washington involved in their health care decisions," said Sen. Jane Cunningham, R-Chesterfield, one of the sponsors of the legislation that put Proposition C on the August ballot. She credited a grass-roots campaign involving Tea Party and patriot groups with building support for the anti-Washington proposition.
With most of the vote counted, Proposition C was winning by a ratio of nearly 3 to 1. The measure, which seeks to exempt Missouri from the insurance mandate in the new health care law, includes a provision that would change how insurance companies that go out of business in Missouri liquidate their assets.
